Microsoft Build Conference 2011: Ted Neward’s Take on Day 1

DevExpress Data Blog
21 September 2011

It was awesome to get community feedback on what is going on with Windows 8. In this post I do a little recap of what Ted Neward had to say after day 1. Here is a summary:

  • Reactions to Windows 8 (specifically the tablet and store stories)
  • Comments about Microsoft’s Execution and strategy behind releasing hardware and bits
  • Thoughts on the FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt) coming into the //BUILD/ Conference
  • Ideas on the tight integration (AKA WinRT) as well as new app contracts
  • Thoughts on what DevExpress can do in this new model
  • Jedi words of wisdom – Patience and execution

Take a look at the interview:

The coolest thing about Ted is that he has the pragmatic edge to help us understand what is really going on and how we can move forward.
